I liked the tour with Calypso. The team was very helpful and caring. We visited 3 places to see the reef. If you go for snorkeling, you will need your own camera, renting it on the tour would cost 75$. If you go for diving they have photographer there.

My family (husband and I, and two teenage sons) had a simply wonderful day on the Great Barrier Reef with Calypso, aboard Calypso Blue. We had all been looking forward to a day on the reef as part of our trip to FNQ, but none more than my 15yo son, who is a true 'reef warrior' environmentalist. For this reason... More

We just recently went on a snorkelling reef tour with Calypso on 'Calypso Blue' and cannot fault the day! The boat only took 40 guests and on the day we only ended up having 27. The smaller group meant you were able to interact with the staff on a personal level and we definitely felt like we'd been taken good... More

We went on Bubbles, a new catamaran. The boat is a good size - big enough to be comfortable, but not so big as to become impersonal. It was great to be out on the deck with the sea air. We are not very strong swimmers, so having a helpful crew was great. The reef locations are amazing.

We went out on a beautiful day to the reef. We went to Opal and Tongue reefs - Tongue Reef was our favourite though. The boat was very comfortable with many places to sit - inside and out. The morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea was all delicious and very welcomed! The staff were all friendly and informative and the... More

My husband and I have been fortunate enough to get the two last spots to get on this boat for a diving day trip in the outer reef. What a day it was! The diving team is very professional, attentive and fun. The equipment is top notch, they provided us with everything we needed, even a long sleeve thick wetsuit... More

This saturday I got the chance to go on the snorkelling tour with a couple of friends and I couldn't have spent my day any better. The sun was shining, the crew was amazing, the fish performed and the reef was absolutely beautiful. If you have the time to go, don't miss this wonderful place. Big thanks to the Tropical... More
